I have had my St. Pete for about a year and a half. My biggest complaint is the metal is very soft and takes dents and nicks easily. Also one of the welds on the inside tubing popped loose. The valves are starting to make some noise. The rubber bumpers aren't soft enough to absorb the impact. I like the horn and would still recommend it to those interested. The big bore is nice, but it doesn't get the dark sound I want. It is a little bright in the upper register. I expected more out of the horn, but you get what you pay for.
